WHAT DO ARIZONA THESPIAN ALUMNI DO?
As an Arizona Thespian Alumni, we have the opportunity to explore the festival(s), stay involved, and provide the best security so that all participating students may be safe at all times. Our goal is to assist with any challenges that may arise while volunteering at State Thespian events. Volunteering to be stationed throughout the festival(s) to supervise and oversee the various workshops and booths, allows us to provide all attending an experience they will never forget!
Arizona Thespian Alumni is dedicated to supporting theatre arts education through community building, post-graduate involvement, and volunteering at all-state events.

What is the time commitment? Volunteering is very flexible and we can work with your availability. Most events are on the weekends and last a few hours in the day throughout the year.
Can I put this volunteering experience on my resume? Yes! This can count as a volunteering opportunity for school or work, and we can sign volunteering papers as well.
